Bill, you bring up a good point about the copyright notice being in small font. I read somewhere that for a movie the notice had to be clearly legible when expanded to full screen. I'm still trying to track down where I read that. I thought it was at USCO but haven't found it again yet.

If that's true, I can think of five uploaders that are going to be pissed at me for finding the small print on "The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant!"

Or the fact that I had taken down "Dracula vs Frankenstein". I was checking out the possibility that my copy was PD. I played it looking for a notice and I did find it in the opening credits, but I had to look twice. The notice was flashed so quickly that if you blinked you'd miss it. I'm not exagerating.

I found the info I was talking about at the USCO site. This is their section on copyright law for films before 1978.

Check out my separate forum posts listed below:
